I'm evaluating different Project Management and Resource Planning add-ons to Jira and was wondering if there are any consulting services available to try to streamline the process. We are a Hybrid shop where we still have projects that require project Gantt charts for our senior management and yearly resource planning at the project level. We use Initiatives to represent Projects, Epics for Features, and Stories with Sub-task to deliver. Jira projects are used to represent each of our Products and an Initiative could span multiple Products/Jira projects. Not all Stories and sub-tasks are created at the start of the project, so we need a solution that is flexible enough to allow us to to plan resources at the Initiative when the project starts and can allow us to adjust allocation to the Story/sub-task as the project unfolds. The resource planning should be able to use FTE or Hours. It would be great if the resource plan could over lay with the project Gantt chart. Finally, it needs to be able to support views at the organization, project, and team levels.
I've evaluated Tempo Planner and Big Picture, but feel both fall short. Any suggestions on tools or consulting services to meet our requirements?
Taking into consideration your requirements it seems like our add-on could fits your request.
